System tray icon tooltip RRS feed

  • Question

  • Looking at some of the tooltips on the system tray icon (e.g. the networking icon), it seems this is a new style tooltip (with icons). It does not appear it is a balloon tip. Does anyone know if one can use this style of tooltip with the existing API Shell_NotifyIcon or is this a custom version of tooltip that Microsoft is using?

  • They aren't using Shell_NotifyIcon. It's a custom window. (A little playing with Spy would have shown this.)
